Tips please Anonymous 07/27/14(Sun)21:27 UTC+1 No.167506 Report

Ok, so after a few years I decided to get PS again, never really tried the pen tool, but a buddy of mine asked me to mess around and see what i can make him, the name is Acid Professional. I know the space between the circle and the letters are too large at the top, any other tips\constructive criticism? (Keep in mind I am not a pro)

Pro tip:

Get the fuck off the computer and sketch this stuff on paper.

Yup I can tell he didn't, the leg of A wouldn't look like that... Plus overall I'd reduce the leg length.

SKETCH not DRAW.
They can be very rough, unfinished, a quick visual rendition of your thought, concept, idea...
Seriously, get off the computer and start sketching. Even if it's just scribbles that only you can decipher, it will help with the creative process.

Kinda barf.

Why the bullshit with the altered typography anyway? The pointy line ends literally make it uncomfortable to look at. Also, why does it have to be a circle? You can pull a logo together without putting it in a cage. Why line-based at all? It looks very weak.
What's Acid Professional about? What's your buddy do, even?

Thx for the feedback, I would like it to be line based, mostly because I have no other ideas on what to do. I am aware of the pointy ends being a bit to over the top, any other suggestions?

Downloading IIIustrator, will also start scetching some alternations, thanks for the help so far
